First FOs

I find the first FOs of the year are kind of FOrgetable.

This is how I feel about the first two FOs of this year.



A pair of scarves.

No real reason to knit them other than to knit them.

I figure I'll send them in with Chunky next December when they have their scarf, hat and mitten drive.


They're knit of Vanna's Choice (the dark and light blue scarf) and Caron Simply Soft (the light blue number).

Nothing fancy.

Just my standard boring go-to scarf pattern from Hip Knits.


I'm kind of in between knitting projects right now. Nothing is really screaming "KNIT ME!"

Nor is my stash very inspiring right now.


And you know me, I'm cheap. I don't want to spend any money on new yarn I really don't need.

At least you have a FO already. I have half of a FO.

I like the blue!

eh, scarves need to be made too. As for insoiring, currently I have cast on Spirogyra fingerless gloves from Knitty and I sawsomething called the 'Infinitude scarf' on the 'Place that shall not be Named'. Both are free patterns. And those infinity scarves are very popular right now...

Ah, "need" being the operative word would be how I've amassed so much sock yarn....people need socks ALL THE TIME! :)

Those scarves look very nice and to have them done already for next Dec. puts you about 11 months ahead of the game! I am still working on the CO Gangs Christmas '10 gifts! They might get them for V-day next month.
Love, Mom

Oooh, squishy. They look comfy cozy.
Well, the new knitty just came out. I like the Java socks. And NYC has a little inspiring event coming up.....

If there's no reason to knit them but to knit, that makes them "pure" rather than "applied" knitting. And even more pure if they're for charity.

It's Chunky's school, so don't you mean their, "scarf, hot and mitten live"?

I've been making PeeWee sweaters. Because, you know, it's about 60 here in the winter so she really needs them.
